ive genuinely been hiding from the hurricane today 🙂. but anyway lol something ive been seeing/hearing a lot of lately is comments from girls floating about bcos they're confused about food & what they should and shouldn't eat.
honestly the only food you *shouldnt* eat should be the stuff you don't like 🙋🏻.
for me this involves mushrooms (devil spawn) and any sort of sea creature lol.
there should be NO food group that you cut out of your diet in the name of "health".
you NEED carbs, you NEED fats, you NEED protein. (& fibre too!!!). if you're currently following a diet which severely restricts one of these food groups you need to ditch it asap.
the only food you reeeeally should *limit* should be processed refined crap, but i mean seriously its 2017, we all know that processed convenient food is pretty bad for us. although tbh everyone bloody loves a packet of oreos every now and then 💁🏻 which is fine, you just need a bit of moderation is all.
but simply: good fats are essential. (think nuts, seeds, avocado, coconut, sesame). they help our bodies maintain healthy tissues/organs, they're vital for good hormone health and help transport certain nutrients.
protein is essential too. it's the building blocks of our entire bodies, every single cell is composed of it. w/out it you just wouldn't be performing optimally.
and *shock*, carbs are essential too. (I eat so much rice/grains/starches/potato). I've done posts on this already but your brain legit only uses glucose to function and carbs are your body's preferred energy source.
so don't scrimp on anything!!! just make sure you're eating primarily whole micronutrient dense foods 🥒 w/ some gooooooood stuff (ahem, pizza 🍕) thrown in every now too 👅👅 #foodisfuel
